How to Tap Public & Non-Profit Support Resources for Entrepreneurs

  • Feb 6, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

There is an alphabet soup of organizations working to support entrepreneurship.  This session will help you sort through them and find the ones that are most relevant to your journey.  

Lois Josefson is the Executive Director of TiE Minnesota, the local chapter of a the world's largest non-profit founded by successful entrepreneurs to help the next generation be as successful.  She is actively working to grow the Minnesota innovation ecosystem.  She knows government from family and volunteer work and peer not-for-profit leaders from her current role.  Learn about the who's who of organizations whose mission is to help entrepreneurs succeed.  Connect with those resources that provide what you need now--or in the future.

A native Minnesotan she has a J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School and was a political science major at Gustavus Adolphus College.  Lois is definitely someone you should have in your network.

    Entrepreneurship has the power to drive change, and health care is a trillion dollar problem and opportunity

    Entrepreneurship is now acknowledged to help drive the prosperity of a community, state, region and nation. So governments and not-for-profit organizations have developed many ways to help, but sometimes these resources are not integrated and are poorly communicated. Lois can help you make the most of this support system.
